Backblast – Northern Aggression – Wheel of Pain – 7/10/19

16 PAX posted at Harmon Park this morning to take a chance on learning what the Wheel of Pain is, but mostly to avoid Dean’s 1776 rep workout at Ivey Redmon.  The PAX: Elaine, Flounder, Checkbook, Blue Hen, Lucky Charms, Epstein, Madoff, Sludge, Mulligan, Sprinkler, Slice N Dice, Lovie, Fortran, Boone’s Farm, Dr. Evil, Deliverance (Q).

Warmarama: SSH’s – 15 IC; Dean Vigodas – 12 IC; Hillbillies – 12 IC; Seam Rippers – 12 IC; Sun Gods – 12 IC each way; Wolverines – 5 (because Sprinkler likes them).

The Thang: We made our way across Main St. to the circle in front of the Town Hall to begin the Wheel of Pain.

There were 12 exercises that targeted abs, chest, and legs.  One exercise at each end of the six sidewalks (spokes) located around the circle (wheel).  Amazingly the PAX understood the instructions of doing the exercise at each end of the wheel spoke and rotate clockwise around the wheel until Omaha was called.  I think most finished about 2.5 to 3 trips around the wheel.  Mumblechatter was minimal since the group was so spread out during the workout.  Exercises were done with Reggae music in the background.


Spoke 1:  Dying cockroaches – 10 IC,  Merkins – 20

Spoke 2:  Monkey humpers – 20,  Pretzel crunches – 15 each side

Spoke 3:  Burpees – 10,  Thighmasters – 15 each leg

Spoke 4:  WWI’s – 15,  Carolina Dry Docks – 20

Spoke 5:  Copperhead squats – 15,  Crunchy frogs – 20

Moseyed back to the bank parking lot for Mary:  LBC’s – 15 IC; Cindy Crawfords – 12 IC each side; Box cutters – 12 IC; Freddie Mercurys – 12 IC; American Hammers – 20 IC.

Always an honor, Deliverance
